Murals in the Market Detroit in Pictures

This time last year Design Exchange visited Chicago & Detroit.  We fell in love with Detroit and found a vey special creative energy in the city.

We visited the Eastern Market area on several occasions meeting some inspiring local artists, and so feel compelled to share some of this brilliant work from Murals in the Market, Detroit 2015. 

Murals in the Market invited over 45 world-class local and international artists to paint large-scale murals throughout the district. In partnership with Eastern Market Corporation, 1xRun and Inner State Gallery curated and produced a 9-day event that activated the entire footprint of the Market with activities ranging from a block party and tailgating, to bike and walking tours, artist lectures and live music.

When you can't quite get the right angle because a parked car is in the way, climbing onto the roof of your own car doesn't hurt. In Detroit's Eastern Market grabbing a shot of the talented @marlobro 's work.

#Detroit is like rock and roll. It's like soul. Detroit is like the whole idea of cool. If you have to explain it to someone, they probably won't understand. You have to see it, live it, be it. That's when Detroit starts to move you. #city #motorcity #motown #love #art #growth #michigan #midwestmoment #photooftheday #instagood #lensdistortions #detroithustlesharder #muralsinthemarket #easternmkt
